How the Deluxe Remote Training System works
The Training System comes with a Remote Control Unit that is paired with the
Pet Collar Unit. At the push of the STATIC CORRECTION KEY on the
Remote Control Unit, a signal is sent to the Pet Collar Unit, which delivers static
correction to your dog to assist you with shaping and modifying its behavior.
The Remote Control Unit is also designed with a TONE KEY and a
VIBRATION KEY . At the push of any one of these keys, a tone or vibration
signal is sent to the Pet Collar Unit, which delivers a tone or vibration to your dog.
The tone function is good for giving your dog an opportunity to respond to your
commands prior to pressing the
STATIC CORRECTION KEY . The
vibration function can be used in many ways. However, it is best suited as a
secondary reinforcement for rewards.
Important guidelines when using the Deluxe Remote Training
System
Included in the Training System are Collar Contacts in three different
lengths (short, medium and long) that deliver static correction to your dog.
Choose the appropriate length for your dog’s hair coat. The Pet Collar Unit
was shipped with medium Collar Contacts that are suitable for dogs with
medium hair coats. If your dog has dense coats or undercoats, use one of the
longer Collar Contacts included with the product.
Proper fit of the Pet Collar Unit is critical to the performance and
effectiveness of the Training System. If the fit is too loose, the collar will not
be able to get sufficient contact with the skin to deliver static correction. If
the fit is too tight, it will irritate your dog’s skin.
Tighten the collar high on your dog’s neck, tight enough that you can get
two fingers between the collar strap and your dog. It should not be able to
rotate around the neck.
Do not make your dog wear the Pet Collar Unit for more than 12 hours
continuously to avoid skin irritation.
Do not connect a leash to the Pet Collar Unit as this might pull the Collar
Contacts too tight against your dog’s neck.
When connecting a separate collar for the leash, make sure that it does not
add pressure on the Pet Collar Unit.
Check the contact area on your dog’s neck for signs of irritation. If there is a
rash or sore, discontinue use until the skin is completely healed. See a
veterinarian if the condition persists.

tightness is reached and push the retainer bar
through the nearest strap hole.
6. Check to ensure that the Pet Collar Unit is in the
center underneath the neck of your dog.
7. Check the fit again after your dog has worn the collar for several minutes or
as your dog gets more comfortable with it.
12 Getting Started
NOTE
The Pet Collar Unit should fit snugly on your dog’s neck so that you can only fit
two fingers underneath it. It should not be able to rotate around the neck.
If necessary, trim some of your dog’s hair where the collar makes contact with
the skin to allow for consistent performance.
2.5 Trim Away Excess Strap Length
After you are satisfied with the fit of the Pet Collar Unit, you may want to trim
away some of the excess nylon strap.
1. Mark the desired strap length with a pen. However, you may want to allow
for growth especially when your dog is young or may grow a thicker winter
coat.
2. Remove the Pet Collar Unit from your dog and trim away excess strap
length.
3. To seal the end of the strap, hold it about 1/4 inch away from a candle flame
or lighter until the edge melts away.
PLEASE USE CAUTION.

Training System), twist the Collar Contacts counter-clockwise to loosen
and remove them.
2. Insert another pair of Collar Contacts of the appropriate length and gently
twist clockwise with your fingers to tighten them.

16 Training Your Dog with the Deluxe Remote Training System
4. Training Your Dog with the Deluxe Remote
Training System
Whether you’re hoping to provide your dog more freedom at the park or trying
to solve frustrating behavior problems, your new Training System provides a
quick and easy training solution. To get the most from your Training System,
carefully follow these instructions.
Your Training System provides 15 levels of static correction from none (LEVEL
0) to very strong (LEVEL 15). Every dog is different. You can’t determine the
right correction level for your dog by their size or breed. Dog temperaments,
sensitivity and personalities are all different, so you will need to conduct a little
experiment to see which level is right for your dog.
NOTE
LEVEL 0 does not deliver any static correction, only vibration and beep tone.
To conserve battery life, the Remote Control Unit will automatically shut down
after 30 minutes of inactivity. Press and hold the POWER KEY on the top
of your Remote Control Unit to power it back on.
4.1 Powering On/Off the Remote Control Unit
To power on or off, press and hold the POWER KEY on the Remote
Control Unit.
4.2 Select a Pet Collar Unit (if you have 2 or more Pet Collar
Units)
Press the OK KEY on the Remote Control Unit until the Pet Collar Unit (1 to
4) to which you wish to send remote commands is displayed.
indicates that collar number 3 is selected.
4.3 Deliver Static Correction
1. Press and hold the STATIC CORRECTION KEY on the Remote
Control Unit.
2. Press to increase the level of correction or press to decrease.
The number beside the symbol on the screen indicates the current
Training Your Dog with the Deluxe Remote Training System 17
ENGLISH
level of correction.
indicates that the current level of correction is 8.
3. The Indicator LED on the Pet Collar Unit flashes alternately in green and red
when delivering static correction.
NOTE
The maximum duration you can press the STATIC CORRECTION KEY
to deliver static correction to your dog continuously is 60 seconds. This is
followed by a 30 seconds “rest” period. You can press the STATIC
CORRECTION KEY again after the “rest” period.
4.4 Determine the TRAINING LEVEL for your dog
TRAINING LEVEL is the level you use to discourage your dog’s behavior, such as
getting on the couch, towards a more acceptable behavior, such as lying on the
ground.
With the Pet Collar Unit properly fitted on your dog and powered on, start on
level 1. This level is extremely low and most dogs will feel very little, if anything
at all. The number beside on your Remote Control Unit indicates the current
Static Correction Level.
1. Press and hold the STATIC CORRECTION KEY on the Remote
Control Unit.
2. Look for signs that your dog is feeling the static correction, such as ears
twitching, looking up or down or a quick shake of the head.
3. If nothing happens, press to go to level 2 and try again.
4. When you see that your dog is feeling the static correction, this is your
dog’s TRAINING LEVEL.
4.5 When to Increase Level of Static Correction
When you are trying to change your dog’s behavior around a heavy distraction
where your dog is too excited to feel the TRAINING LEVEL described above,
such as jumping on a visitor at the door, you will need to increase the correction
level 2 or 3 levels higher than the TRAINING LEVEL. If the TRAINING LEVEL you
established was level 3, then you will need to increase it to level 5 to have your
18 Training Your Dog with the Deluxe Remote Training System
dog respond when it is really distracted or excited. If the TRAINING LEVEL you
established was level 5, then you will need to increase it to level 7, so on and so
forth.
4.6 Push-To-Talk Function
On the side of your Remote Control Unit is a Push-To-Talk key. You can press
and hold down on the right-hand side of the Remote Control Unit to convey
commands, praises or verbal reprimands to your dog through the Pet Collar
Unit.
4.7 Tone Key
The TONE KEY on your Remote Control Unit delivers a beep tone to the
Pet Collar Unit. You can press this key for a few seconds to give your dog an
opportunity to respond to known commands before pressing the STATIC
CORRECTION KEY .
4.8 The Vibration Key
The VIBRATION KEY on your Remote Control Unit delivers vibration to
the Pet Collar Unit. Although the vibration function can be used in many ways, it
is best suited as a secondary reinforcement for rewards. Vibration of your dog’s
collar is meaningless to your dog on its own, but when used in conjunction with
rewards such as treats, meals, walks, praise and play, you will soon find that your
dog responds very happily to the collar’s vibration. You can even use the
vibration alone as a ‘reward’ when it is not possible or convenient to offer your
dog an immediate food or praise reward.
Training Tips 19
ENGLISH
5. Training Tips
Use only the static correction level necessary to get the desired response.
In most circumstances, your dog should never yelp in discomfort or pain.
Reserve the highest settings for critical, dangerous or life threatening
behaviors such as running towards a traffic.
After stopping an inappropriate behavior, immediately direct your dog to an
appropriate behavior followed by a reward.
After you have pressed the STATIC CORRECTION KEY to stop an
inappropriate behavior, such as jumping on a visitor, immediately direct your
dog to a more appropriate behavior such as “Get your ball!”
Or, if you have taught your dog basic commands, you can command your
dog to sit and then provide a treat or verbal praise.
The rationale behind this is to direct your dog to an acceptable behavior and
provide a reward for your dog after being corrected for an inappropriate
behavior.
Teaching your dog the “Come” command.
1. Put a separate collar on your dog’s neck above the Pet Collar Unit, without
adding pressure to the Collar Contacts on the Pet Collar Unit.
2. Attach a long leash to the separate collar.
3. Press and hold the POWER KEY to power on the Pet Collar Unit.
4. When your dog is distracted and looking away from you, press and hold
the STATIC CORRECTION KEY on your Remote Control Unit (at
your dog’s TRAINING LEVEL). The number beside on your Remote
Control Unit indicates the current Static Correction Level. See “Determine
the TRAINING LEVEL for your dog” on page 17.
5. Jog backwards.
6. As soon as your dog turns to follow you, release the STATIC
CORRECTION KEY and bring the dog to you.
7. Provide a treat reward and praise. Repeat these steps until your dog is
returning to you unprompted with the leash pull.
8. Now, your dog will know how to respond to the collar’s static correction.
20 Training Tips
Teaching your dog the “Sit” command.
1. Put a separate collar on your dog’s neck above the Pet Collar Unit, without
adding pressure to the Collar Contacts on the Pet Collar Unit.
2. Attach a long leash to the separate collar.
3. Press and hold the POWER KEY to power on the Pet Collar Unit.
4. When your dog is facing you, press and hold the STATIC CORRECTION
KEY on your Remote Control Unit (at your dog’s TRAINING LEVEL).
The number beside on your Remote Control Unit indicates the current
Static Correction Level. See “Determine the TRAINING LEVEL for your
dog” on page 17.
5. Use your free hand to guide your dog to a sitting position and give the “Sit”
command.
6. As soon as your dog is in the sitting position, release the STATIC
CORRECTION KEY on your Remote Control Unit.
7. Provide a treat reward and praise. Repeat these steps until your dog sits
without your hand gestures when you give a “Sit” command.
8. Now, your dog will know how to respond to the collar’s static correction.
